Couples can never be exactly sure when it happened. Or even when it started. But at some
point in that initial journey of contemplation our clients find themselves in the right here and
now, falling totally in love with Balbirnie House, and all that we do.
And so, each wedding begins.
‘Deciding to have your wedding at Balbirnie House,
is symbolic of a moment in life that is full of hope and love’
Balbirnie House is a 1777 Georgian mansion, Category Grade A Listed of
national and international importance.
The house was the inspiration for Edinburgh’s New Town. This historic house was caringly
restored and converted into a hotel in the late 1980’s, and since then the property has evolved
into a totally unique and special destination, and especially so for weddings.
Balbirnie is one of Scotland’s landmark hotels, with a uniquely established history under 4
decades of personal supervision and private ownership, playing host and providing a backdrop
for many thousands of Scotland’s most special private and corporate events.
Over the years Balbirnie has been the recipient of a quite extraordinary collection
of industry awards, especially for weddings.
In these contexts, 2022 was an extraordinary year.
We were quite simply overjoyed to announce that at the most recent Scottish Hotel of the Year
Awards (the Hotel Industry Oscars equivalent), and set against the competitive backdrop of
the many wonderful hotels and wedding venues across Scotland, Balbirnie once again received
overall ‘Scottish Wedding Hotel of the Year’ - Rather incredibly, that is now 14 times in the last
16 years that Balbirnie has received Scotland’s top wedding award, in recognition of our
dedication to our weddings.
Our whole team are over the moon and thrilled that all our hard work to make each and every
wedding so special has been so well recognised.
Arising perhaps as a result of what has happened with The Scottish Hotel of the Year award
scheme, specifically in that there is no hotel
